Most Fail to Understand
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

        Most Fail to Understand

Most fail as yet to understand

Most can’t believe God’s Son

Most question God’s almighty hand

While blind to all He’s done

 

Some rich some poor, some young some old

Some near and some afar

Blind ignorant to whom they’re sold

To why on earth they are

 

No two in fact are quite the same

Each woman’s child unique

Content, they play the devil’s game

Ignorant Truth to seek

 

For this they’ll seek, for that they’ll search

Though nothing seems to please

Yet life by grace in some small church

Is found on bended knees

 

By those with praise for Christ The King

Who worship Christ as Lord

Who to His name would glory bring

Who’ll flee God’s vengeful sword

 

They’ll flee the grave flee coming wrath

Will flee the flames of hell

Will find to life Redemption’s Path

Will drink from Heaven’s Well

 

Who in this life make Christ their choice

Who drink of Heaven’s Dew

Will hear The Shepherd’s guiding voice

May serve through birth anew

 

Who answers now to Jesus’ call

Who at their post remain

Who stand when all about them fall

Will live to live again..…

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
